Samsung's Galaxy Apollo offers a multi-touch screen and a good range of features at a relatively low price point.

Samsung Galaxy Apollo I5801 review

 

It may have updated software, but the Apollo lacks its predecessor's excellent AMOLED screen and it feels far cheaper.

Samsung Galaxy Apollo review -

 

Affordable for an Android phone. Fairly impressive capacitive touch-screen, decent built-in storage and access to the Android Market

Poor camera and sluggish GPS. Screen is relatively small and low-resolution

Samsung Galaxy Apollo review

 

The Samsung Galaxy 580 Android smartphone is compact and feature packed, but it remains overpriced compared to alternatives, particularly the excellent LG Optimus One.

Another decent effort Samsung. Only problem is that we seem to get new Android phones every few weeks. Will there be a better specced and better value one around the corner? I suspect the answer is yes.

Samsung's Galaxy range of devices is gaining quite a bit of popularity and after the success of their Corby devices, the company is getting more of the spotlight. One of their latest Android devices is the I5801 aka Galaxy 3. It's offered up as a lower...

I’m happy that Android powered devices are becoming more affordable all the time. Samsung’s Galaxy 3 comes with a price tag of Rs. 12,300 (MRP) but is available in certain locations for Rs. 11,900 (MOP). It might not as cheap as Spice’s Android...

Samsung Galaxy 3 and Galaxy Apollo review: Galactic twins

 

Congratulations, it's twins! The Samsung I5800 Galaxy 3 and I5801 Galaxy Apollo are both in our office and they're keen to show everybody that Android is great for lower mid-range phones too as well as high-end phones.

Display resolution is too low; poor sunlight legibility ; Editing complex documents is very slow ; No free GPS navigation solution ; No Flash support for the web browser ; Video recording is poor ; The all-plastic body is a real fingerprint magnet

Samsung I5800 Galaxy 3 preview: First look

 

Smartphones for the masses is what Samsung want and Bada alone won't be enough perhaps to get them there. Why not the Samsung I5800 Galaxy 3 then? A mid-range Android phone with a custom paintjob...

Android is infiltrating the lower smartphone ranks. Mission objective: cut down on expensive hardware features and provide a robust experience. The Samsung I5800 Galaxy 3 does just that. The hardware won't make it a flagship, but with 3G, Wi-Fi, GPS,...

Samsung Galaxy 3

 

With the Galaxy 3, Samsung will take its big daddy Android, the Galaxy S, and remodel it for the budget conscious, skimping on the screen and memory to keep the price low.
